'Atari Flashback 8 Gold' and 'Sega Genesis Flashback' Available For Pre-Order Soon

Atari has said previously that while it would be re-releasing classic games for the Ataribox console, including Pac-Man, Pong, Space Invaders and Asteroids, and it will also feature modern gaming content.

All Atariboxes have an SD card reader, an HDMI port, and four USB ports, as well as glowing indicator lights, but Atari isn't sharing any more details as of yet.

It looks like we finally have some details about the new Ataribox console that they start teasing at E3, Atari has sent out an email to Atari fans with more information on the console. Clearly inspired by the Atari 2600, the design is a lovely modern reboot of that console. Today, the first images of the new box have been revealed. Though Atari now licenses its brand out, it's moved to reassure fans that all is going well with the Ataribox. Two versions of the Ataribox will be released, one in wood, and one in black / red.

Information on pricing, release dates, game content, or even full specs aren't on the cards right now.

Unfortunately, there are no further details on pricing or availability, but we do know that the Ataribox can be had in the classic black/wood finish or in a more modern black/red color scheme.

According to the newsletter, the Ataribox will be of delivering both "classic" and "current gaming content".

You won't be surprised to learn that the Ataribox will be available with a number of classic games to let you bask in the early days of console gaming where we sat on the carpet in front of tiny tube TVs (with rabbit ears on the back, of course). The Ataribox simply had a name back then and a teaser video that suggested it could be a vintage console in line with Nintendo's NES Mini. "We're not teasing you intentionally." continues the newsletter "We want to get this right, so we've opted to share things step by step as we bring this to life".
